Pint at the Smokehouse. Clear amber/copper pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, malt, pine and some floral notes. Orange flavor up front, but an incredibly strong floral character jumps in. A bit of grapefruit interrupts for a moment, then the bitter floral onslaught continues through to the finish. Like sucking on a rose petal. Nose was awesome, but the flavor was too over the top floral for this beer to be truly great.

Firkin version at Barley’s 9th Annual Mini RAF (05/14/11): The beer is a mostly clear copper color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Citrusy aroma with malt notes. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops and toasted malt. The finish is fruity with touches of malt and pine left over. Decent overall.
